While festivities might already be a distant memory for most, the people involved in these incidents will have stark and unpleasant reminders for some time to come.
Fireworks and Chinese lanterns can be extremely dangerous - as the injuries and fires GMFRS’ crews attended on New Year’s Day prove - and should be used very carefully.
Thankfully, our firefighters were there quickly to help these people and it seems that none of those involved was seriously injured.
